    bad shudder on coupe - urgent

    hey guys. got something very strange happening to my coupe. it does not happen all the time, mailny only on longer distance trips.

    suddenly the car will just start to shudder, it only happens when the car is in gear and you on the acc. its really bad, the entire car starts vibrating. you can feel like something clicking from the left side when slowing down, its like after every rotation the wheel makes, something locks into place.

    could it be gear box, diff, cv joints ?? i dont know where to start. did anyone experience something like this before, please help guys.

    thanks.

    Morning,
    sounds like one of your CV joints has gone have a look, jack the car up, turn the wheels while checking out each CV joint.

    If you can't do this yourself, take it to your local Gge or a Tyre and Exhaust Centre. If the vibration is that bad it shouldn't take to long to identify.

    thanks, problem is that everytime i take it to someone to get it checked, it does not shudder.

    cv boots are not damaged, all looks fine. but will get that checked out. need to get it done asap as I got a 600km drive in 2weeks.

    Ask the Gge to take it for a long drive.
